Brothers Osborne Enjoyed Their Blue Collar Upbringing

Brothers Osborne Enjoyed Their Blue Collar Upbringing

With songs like “Rum” and “Dirt Rich” from their debut album, Pawn Shop, Brothers Osborne explained how they grew up and where they came from as a blue-collar family.

“We’re from Maryland, which is a very blue-collar state. Our dad’s a plumber, our mom’s a hairdresser. We didn’t have a lot of money growing up, but we still really loved life. We enjoyed ourselves so much, you know, and we tried to have the biggest time possible with what little we had,” says John Osborne. “We want to express that it’s okay to be that way, because we turned out alright. We’re doing fine. As long as you’re able to laugh and able to enjoy yourself with family and friends, you’re really living the good life.”

The guys are currently making their way up the country charts with “Shoot Me Straight” from their latest album, Port Saint Joe.
